I've gone back over this thread to find out what engine you are using, seems similar to mine.  The last picture works for me.

Are you able to tell me if the holes for the timing discs in the ABF and diesel cranks are in the same place when compared to each other?  I'd like to confirm if the ABF timing disc sits in the same place as it should when changed to the diesel version.

I have a timing disc to put on to a diesel crank in an ABF block, I just have to strip it down first.

Hopefully this will solve your problem.  Are you using the new management?

I am using a 16v abf block bored out plus a TDI diesel crank. this gives 2092cc

If you are asking about the crank sensor trigger wheel, look at the photo.
That is the two of them in a vice. the front one is the diesel which is smooth with a gap. the one behind is the 16v one toothed with a gap!
Also the diesel crank has a lug that sits in the hole you see. So that's why they are in the vice so I could drill a corresseponding hole in the 16v one.

Not using different management for now. I wanted to run the engine in before I get the throttle bodies and new management!

This has been my real problem because the trigger wheels are different and the crank sensors are different to!

I will need a HAL type for the new set up!

Have broken the Dizzy!!

The inner where the two prongs go into the end of the cam, there is a dark metal ring and somehow I have split that in half!!!
F**k knows how!
So dunno whether to chance it, as its held together by a coiled spring or get a new dizzy!

personally I wouldn't chance it. it might be ok but it might damage something instead. and you know it would always be in the back of your mind if it wasn't right :wink:
